Introduction: How to Make a Portable Handy Lie Detector in Altoid Tin
Hi. I'm paewookyung, and this is my first posting in this site. please take note that
english is not my mother tongue. so please understand some of my gramatic mistake.;
Anyway, let's get this started!
This is a portable lie-detector built in Altiod tin. maybe you could have some fun useing this thing.
note: this detector is less sensitive then a real one. this could be miss some (many) of the lies.
Step 1: Things You'll Need.
You will need some things below for this project.
1. circuit board
2. 10K& resister
3. 47K& resister
4. 470& resister
5. 1M& resister x2
6. 47K& VR
7. knob for VR
8. 2N3904 transistor x3
9. 0.1 ? mylar cap
10. slide switch.
11. 9V bettery snap
12. LED (one red, one green)
13. solding tools.
15. basic tools,
17. aluminum foil
....and most of all, Altoid tin!
Step 2: Make a Finger Pads
make a finger pads by sticking a aluminum foil to the valcro.
And don' forget to stick a wire between the valcro and thw foil!
Step 3: Solding the Circuit
Solder the circuit as a diagram below. And before solding the circuit, cut the circuit board to
suitable size to fit in the Altoid tin
Step 4: Drilling the Altoid Tin
Drill the Altoid tin for a VR.
and DO NOT use a sharp-end drill bit. it will tear the tin into half.
Step 5: Put the Floor Sheet
Put the floor sheet in a floor of the tin to avoid circuit from 'shorting'.
and secure is with a glue.
in my case, I used a piece of box, and secure with a hotmelt.
Step 6: Put Everything in Order.
Put everything in a Altoid tin and secure all of them with a glue, hotmelt, E.T.C
Step 7: Done.
Now your lie detector is ready to go. first, put the finger pad to the finger of the 'suspect'
then, slowly, turn the VR until the 'true' LED is light, and the 'false' LED is dark.
then, ask a question to the suspect , when the false LED get light, the suspect is lying.
Step 8: Enjoy!
Just Enjoy that detector. but take this in your mind, this may not be detect lie so perfectly.
And sorry about mistake the 'welcome' to 'walcome' is the photos.
